In such picturesque place you couldn't to think about anything, but simple to admire beauty and to listen a quiet, dear Yan! Wonderful! Eva

Well, dear Eva,

You now have a picture of me, for this is actually a Margaret Stehbens photo.

Yes indeed it was a very special place to be. No wonder it was the first "National Park" declared in the world.

It reminds me a lot of your photos taken in Montenegro.

Warmest regards,

Dear Eva,

The beauty you see through the macro lens and that which we find through a wide angle lens has the same magic elements. And both views can inspire, uplift and even silence aggressors.

It is wonderful, dear Eva.

Yes, dear Yan! Does not matter how we look at the world, the main thing - what we see around us and how understand it. Gratefully, Eva

Thanks for your visit, Josef. For me to be in the Yosemite Valley was like a dream realised, and for that reason I asked my wife to take my photo as I wanted others to keep alive for a long time in family albums that I had had the sheer privilege of being there!! I was affected by the majesty and beauty of the place. I guess it is a bit like your being at the America's Cup or on a mountain path high in the Alps!
